Before cancer, Morgan and I were neck and neck in the "worry" race...Along with the HELL, cancer gave me a new perspective, but poor Morgan didn't get the memo...She still worries about EVERYTHING!!! I went to Lafayette on Thursday and Friday, and here is a sampling of her Thursday morning worries:
She walks into the bathroom and says, "I thought you said we were leaving early today...It's not early..When are you going to be ready?" (it was two hours earlier than the previous mornings)
In the car: "What is the speed limit? It doesn't feel like you are going 45 - it feels like 70. Are you sure you are going 45?"
"Are you sure you can drop us off at camp this early?" (Camp starts at 6:30am and I was dropping them off at 8am)
"Does Daddy know what to pack in our swim bags tomorrow?"
"Does Daddy know how the camp carpool line works? Does he have the sign with our names on it?"
Morgan may drive me back to meds! I'm sure there is a way that I could respond to her that might alleviate some of her anxiety - I just need to find out how. How sick is it that I am thinking about visiting a child psychologist about Morgan's anxiety? Quite honestly, I figure if there is ANYWAY to reverse her mindset (lessen if I can't reverse), then I need to start as early as possible...
Maybe I should frame this for Morgan's room :)
